Parent Tips to Help Your Child Succeed


  • Ask your child to brainstorm dinner ideas for the week.
  • When your child uses the Internet, stop by to monitor—just as you pay attention to the TV programs he watches.

  • When studying history, acting out past events can bring lessons to life.

  • Have your child teach you something he needs to learn for homework. It’s a great way to reinforce learning.
